"Gals, Oceans and Alcohol...

...that's GOA for you". Well, it had always been one of my dream destinations...kept enticing me since college days...but ultimately when I managed to finally go there last week, she disappointed me...rather I disappointed myself.
Had gone on an official getaway...which means you are put up in a 5 star beach resort but your freedom is totally curbed. What you eat (special menu designed for your cost-conscious firm), what you listen to (boring corporate gyaan), what you play (team building games, supposedly) and even what you wear (the omni-present corporate T-shirt) is dictated by someone else...Others enjoyed, as the booze was on the house...and the opportunities for team-building exercises (?) were aplenty on the dance floor(as these increase in direct proportion to the alcohol content in your blood)....I realised the corporate dance floor is hardly any different from a college dance floor...the drunken dramas are all the same...
I was thoroughly bored...the only consolation was the sea...she was her rough self...as I've known her from my childhood days...(later realised my hometown and Goa share the same coastline)
Well, I came back and cribbed to my heart's content...and that's when I got the response "Gals, Oceans and Alcohol...." well, so maybe in my next birth as a drunken womaniser, I might fall in love with GOA, but definitely not this time around.....

therez a more famous way we used to tag Goa. As the Land of 3 Bs. Beer, Beaches and Bitches.

Formally, it is the Land of the 3 S. Of the Sun, Sand and Sea.

I lived there for one year and it is a lovely place. Life is so smooth though one can miss the action filled days.
